September, 19th, of 1965 in Stuttgart, Germany.
With creating drawings
and paintings with concern to various technical themes I started soon
as a child. Mostly I liked making architecture plans and sketches of cars.
Also a redesign of technical articles of daily use, even with adding
other functions was one of my favourites.
I made first experiences
with oil painting at my primary school age. I could use my mothers
oil painting equipment. Late I convoyed the painter Hans Hahn-Seebruck
from Leinfelden for painting in the nature and helped him making colour
prints from his woodcuts.
I couldn't fullfill
my wish to study transportation design in Pforzheim, so I studied
electrical engineer in Esslingen. Meanwhile my job lead me to the
car development. So the technical development and the fine art for cars
are the two sides of fascination on cars.

Since many years my painting is about cars.
I like oldtimer also as newer cars. I show them in a natural manner
in town, a landscape or on race track.
I think, good painting about cars is quite rare.

anspruchsvoller Gebrauchsgegenstand, eine Massenware unserer Zeit, möchte
ich zum Kunstobjekt machen. Aber auch zum Objekt der künstlerischen

of the association Atelier Metzingen and was joint founder of the
group Kunstwerk. Several single und common exhibitions at home and abroad
happened in this period.
Meanwhile I work in my own studio
